After we remove the last vestiges of Christianity from city government, we can set to work on the greater task of purging our citizens of it. I recommend a law requiring all Christians to wear large yellow crosses on their clothing, so we can spot them from a safe distance, lest their pernicious doctrines of love and forgiveness and salvation disrupt our prized independence and self-realization. Then, after we round them up and put them safely away, we can take a look at the Jews among us.
